Easy Banana Almond Ice-cream

This is a little tribute to my super radical girlie-friend Nat, and to those of you who don't have an Ice-cream maker but desperately want to make it at home. If you haven't done this already then get thee to thine food processor or high-speed blender and make it now!
Banana Almond Ice-Cream 
2 c Frozen Banana
3 to 4 Tbsp Almond Butter
2 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp Coconut Nectar //or// 1 Medjool Date 
1 tsp Lemon juice
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
--Puree until very smooth---
Place Ice-Cream into freezer for 1 hour, remove and stir, place back in freezer for 1 more hour. 



  1. Does the lemon make it sour &
    Does it really taste anything like ice cream?

  2. Thanks for the comment C!
    I don't think the lemon makes it sour, but you could always opt to make it without and add it in later if you like.
    If you leave it in your freezer long enough then I think the texture is a perfect fake out! It falls somewhere in-between soft serve and real icecream.

  3. mmm i think i'll try subbing the lemon for cinnamon though. yummmmmm. i'm totally addicted to raw ice cream.

  4. that sounds like an awesome idea Nichole! thanks for the comment too - xo

  5. You can actually make any ice cream recipe without an ice cream maker! Just freeze it solid, let it thaw for some 30 minutes and blend. It works great.

  6. This is so exciting! Banana ice cream is my favorite! As soon as I get some spare kitchen time I'm going to try this. Thanks for the recipe!

  7. I was cautiously optimistic, but I made this other night and instantly feel in love. Thanks SO much for this recipe Miss Sarahfae!

  8. For anyone considering making this, DO IT. You will not regret it! This fancy-pants version of raw banana ice-cream is absolutely worth it.

    Here's mine:

  9. How many cups is two bananas? Loving this site btw! <3

  10. I'm not sure how many bananas equal two cups, because the size of bananas can often vary. I think you'd be safe with assuming 3 medium sized bananas (chopped) equals two cups, maybe a bit more. Thanks for the comment!


  11. This raw ice-cream is simply the best!
